i see most of these threads are for the ms3, is the wiring different at all for the 6? and what about wiring them so they are on all the time? without the parking lights.

I guess I don't remember where I got this:

Fog light mod


Quote:
Those who have an MS6, can you post the modifed directions as i am not too electrically inclined[/b]
1. Disconnect Negative Terminal on battery. (Uses a 10mm wrench)

2. Remove fuse box cover in engine compartment (right side of engine above air filter box)

3. Remove the two gold nuts you see when you take the cover off (and terminals under them). (Uses a 10mm socket.)

4. Disconnect the large wire bundle, by way of it's clip and not the actual wire connection, from the right of the fuse box. While at the same time/during this step, unlock the fuse assembly by means of the four clip at each of the four corners of the fuse box.

4.5 Cut the black electrical tape that secures the wire shield to the wire if need be.

5. Now the whole fuse assembly (the plate that all the fuses are mounted to) can be lifted 2-3 inches up.—

6. Locate the FOG RELAY. Locate the pastel green wire coming from the relay (most left terminal) and follow the wire as far as you can (about 5-6inches).—

7. Cut the pastel green wire from the FOG RELAY as far as you can, but leaving enough to cap the wire off. (I suggest a splice cap from Radio Shack rather than electrical tape because electrical tape will eventually come off due to heat and atmosphere.)

8. Now splice that 5-6in piece of pastel green wire to either (I suggest splicing the wire under the fuse plate so no wire is showing) (use a water proof environmental splice)
a. Wire coming off the TAIL 10A fuse (if you want the fog lights on only when parking lights are on, headlights or highbeams)
or
b.Wire coming off the ENG BAR 15A fuse (if you want the fog lights to come on without having to actuate the parking lights, headlights, or highbeams)

9. Reseat the fuse plate into the fuse box shell and the harness side connection. Before you push down to lock the clips, ensure all the guides are lined up so the shell conforms to the plate and isn't buldging, ect.

10. Retighten the gold nuts.

11. Replace the fuse box cover - make sure you tightened those nuts, not just by hand.

12. Reconnect the battery wire.

13. Operation check.

14. Go to each door window, put the window down then back up and hold it there until you hear the door relay click in each door (Have key in and rotated fwd, but engine off so you can hear.) After the window work go to the driver master switch and make sure it works.

I haven't looked yet to see, but I see absolutley no reason why this could not be achieved under the dash. The relay under the hood should still operate as engineered but should be able to do this much easier. Will update when I have the time to investigate.

This is the how to I used for my foglight mod. It took a half hour tops. No problems after a year except for a burned out HID bulb. For the flickering I would suggest checking that the wire splice is secure.

Hm, I think it might be related to my additional DRL leds?

I have no idea otherwise, why would it flicker..

Do you have HIDs in fogs?
